Plumb the depths of the Submarine Ring of Fire and explore seismic waves with this lesson. Junior geologists simulate s-waves and p-waves, calculate their speeds, and then apply the data to discover the material that makes up inner Earth. Detailed directions, student handouts, and internet resources provide everything you need to present a memorable lesson on seismology.
Learners understand information and stories contained in patriotic songs. In this patriotic music lesson, students participate in grade appropriate lessons to understand the music and lyrics of patriotic songs. Learners perform the patriotic songs.
Students explore first-person accounts of volcanic eruptions throughout time and use second-hand information about volcanoes. They use both types of accounts to write news articles covering the events of a historic volcanic eruption as it unfolded.
Students investigate the Umoja shantytown in Miami, Florida as well as other shantytowns around the world in order to create a Web site bringing awareness to the issue of slum dwelling.
Are your middle and high schoolers having trouble with tests? Do they need skills to improve reading comprehension? Take the time to teach some useful strategies for both. Working together as a class or in small groups, discuss study strategies, review the RRAP reading method, practice making a study plan, and then put it all to use! Although this resource is missing links to necessary handouts, it is still an excellent source providing teachers with a great instructional activity idea.
Students examine the significance of the 8/30/99 vote in East Timor, which determined the territory's independence from Indonesian rule, by analyzing an NYT article to explain actions/reactions.
Young scholars discover the major characteristics of volcanoes on the Pacific Ring of Fire. They describe the processes that produce the "Submarine Ring of Fire." students explain the factors that contribute to explosive volcanic eruptions.
Students examine the process of tectonic plates and why the Mariana Arc is active with volcanoes. They create a model of the Mariana Arc out of clay.
Young scholars discover common features of hydrothermal vent fluids. They use this knowledge to locate possible undiscovered hydrothermal vents on the ocean floor.
Students discuss the benefits of volcanic activity on marine life. They explain the process of tectonic plates.
The tectonic processes that have resulted in the formation of the Marianas Arc, and the Marianas Trench are explored. Groups of pupils access websites that give them a wealth of information about these formations. Each group must prepare a three-dimensional relief map of the Marianas Arc, or a model of a volcano found in the Marianas Islands. This impressive plan should lead to a much greater understanding of the earth's tectonic processes.
View a video presentation comparing chemosynthesis to photosynthesis. Review the findings of the 2004 Ring of Fire Expedition that studied biological communities around the hydrothermal vents of the Mariana Arc. In collaborative groups, marine biologists research and report on the chemosynthetic organisms that make their homes there. A surplus of resources is listed, including animations, videos, and photos for learners to glean information from.
Research current and proposed peace talks around the world with this New York Times lesson, Using the Darfur peace talks in Abuja, Nigeria as a starting point, middle schoolers create a news program on the subject.

Students engage in a lesson designed to be used before visiting The Orange County Museum of Art in California. They are exposed to works of art from a featured artist and recreate some of his work in the classroom. Students also conduct research into the life of the artist to have information before visiting the gallery.
Students analyze monthly sea surface temperature data from the Pacific Ocean to determine if the period is an El Nino or a normal year. They recognize signs to see if there are any patterns that signal either occurrence. Satellite images are interpreted and conclusions are drawn from various maps.
Students explore why the Mariana Arc is the most volcanically active place on Earth. In this 'Ring of Fire' lesson, students create a relief map of the Mariana Arc or a model of a Marianas Island volcano, to scale. They describe the volcanic processes that formed the Mariana Arc.
The best part about teaching guides is all the great information you can use to inform your class. They infer what type of boundary exists between two tectonic plates. Then, using given information on earthquakes and volcanism they'll determine if their guesses are correct.
Young scholars identify the characteristics of animals that have backbones. In this investigative lesson students examine the adaptations that animals have.
Students study the classification system of tornadoes. In this tornado lesson students make their own tornadoes in different mediums.
Pupils assess how people both support and refute actions that lead to the extinction of animals. They examine how the wild tiger population has grown from near-extinction due to conservation efforts. They investigate an animal species that is en
